In China's pickup truck market, with the change of policies in 2022, pickup trucks are becoming more and more popular in the market, but there are still many consumers who are hesitant to choose diesel or gasoline pickup trucks. In fact, diesel engines and gasoline engines are very different in terms of structure, output characteristics, operating status, etc. So, how should we choose the type of engine for pickup trucks?

This article will take you through the main differences between diesel pickups and gasoline pickups, and guide you in choosing the right pickup.

Diesel Pickup VS Gasoline Pickup: What's the Difference?

China pickup

Taking JMC VIGUS PLUS as an example, gasoline engines and diesel engines have different working modes due to different oil compositions. Gasoline engines use spark plugs to ignite the mixture in the cylinder, while diesel engines use pistons to directly compress and ignite the mixture. Therefore, diesel engines tend to have higher compression ratios and more vibrations when the engine is running. At the same time, diesel engines have relatively high thermal efficiency and good fuel economy.

From the perspective of engine characteristics and vehicle functions, the diesel engine has a relatively low speed and large torque, which is more suitable for heavy loads and climbing conditions. Gasoline engine revs higher than diesel engine.

In terms of manufacturing cost, the manufacturing precision and material strength of diesel engines are higher than those of gasoline engines, and diesel engines are also equipped with after-treatment systems, so the diesel version of the same brand is often more expensive than the gasoline version.

Reasons to choose a diesel pickup truck

  • Torque and Traction

    Diesel trucks generally produce more torque than their gasoline-powered counterparts. As a result, they can often tow heavier loads than similarly sized gas engines. This makes them highly regarded as work trucks and transport vehicles.

  • Fuel economy

    Diesel engines are often more efficient and fuel efficient than gas engines due to ignition mode and mechanical structure. And diesel is generally cheaper than gasoline.

  • Life

    Anecdotal and scientific evidence suggests that diesel engines last much longer than other comparable gas engines, in part because of their simpler construction and stronger engine blocks. A well-maintained diesel engine can power your trip for over 500,000 miles.

 

Reasons to choose a gas pickup truck

  • Acceleration and horsepower

    Indeed, diesel engines tend to provide more torque. For many daily drivers, however, it's the vehicle's horsepower and acceleration specs that really matter. Gas-powered trucks are generally better at accelerating and overtaking other cars.

  • More gas stations

    Not every gas station offers diesel, so drivers opting for gasoline-powered trucks will spend less time worrying about where to find their next fuel nearby.

  • Lower maintenance cost

    Since diesel engines don't have spark plugs and are generally simpler in design, many drivers want them to be less expensive to maintain. In fact, service appointments and repairs are often more expensive than gas truck powertrain repairs due to the heavy-duty and sometimes hard-to-find parts used in diesel engines.

 

How should consumers choose the type of pickup truck?

If you have a definite need for a pickup, like off-road, a diesel pickup can really excel in those areas. As a utility vehicle, diesel pickup trucks are more powerful, consume less fuel, have more durable engines, and are better for carrying cargo.

If you need more comfort in your pickup truck, then a gasoline engine is better for you. Gasoline engines are characterized by smooth operation and low noise, providing you with a quieter driving environment and a softer vibration experience.

In addition, the local policy situation, weather factors, working environment, etc. should also be considered.

Conclusion

From the current point of view, diesel pickups dominate the Chinese market, and it is foreseeable that this situation will continue for some time. With the diversified development of pickup products, there will be more and more models facing different application needs, and customers will have more choices when purchasing pickups.
